national correspondent john king is traveling with the president in amman right now and is joining us now with the latest. it sounds like the president is still a little bit hopeful at least that this can be resolved, iran's nuclear ambitions, peacefully through diplomacy and negotiation. that is the impression i'm getting though he is obviously not ruling out the military option either. >> reporter: that's the delicate challenge for the president. if you just listen to one event like that one today you might think oh, he's playing good cop. then you listen to some of his statements during the trip in israel where he promised the israeli government if necessary if diplomacy fails look me in the eye. i mean it. i will use military force to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. he also said he wouldn't stand in the way if israel wanted to defend itself. so at some points he is muscular at other points more gentle and reaching out. it is the big national holiday, the biggest holiday of the year in iran right now. when he talks about the great civilization he is trying to reach out to t

as well. i can remember being a young reporter in the '90s, covering pope john paul ii's visit to denver with a youth group from mexico and seeing what a beloved figure he was, there with president clinton, of course, and even more beloved that his successor, pope benedict. what in your judgment, can this pope, could he, should he do to cullivate that relationship with this country? >> well, i was a very young bishop at the time in washington state, and that was the first time i went to world youth day with a whole lot of young people who sold tacos endlessly in order to afford a chartered bus, and i was moved by it because they were. i saw how it changed their lives, had a huge impact on that diocese, but pope benedict wasn't as extroverted. he was a kind man, a shy man, and he wasn't used to showing that in public, and this man is a pastor, first and foremost, he spent all his life being close to people, especially the poor, close to his own brothers in his religious society and also to the people he served in a large diocese in very difficult times, so he's a man of integrity, and tha

some problems that they see coming down the road. bill: okay. this is a tweet that senator john thune september out the other day. it reads in part, since passing obamacare, or rather obamacare has produced more than 20,000 pages of burdensome regulations? hash tag broken problem misses. he sent out a picture of the stack of pages you see on regulations compared to the law et cetera. 20,000 pages of regulations? is that a -- >> yeah. senator mitch mcconnell has been making a big deal of this. you may have seen when he appeared at the conservative political action conference he actually took out those 20,000 pages onto the stage with him. his office printed them all out. i asked him, is that a prop? is that just blank paper? he said no, we actually printed out all of the obamacare regulations and a lot of these have come out since the election. republicans were particularly incensed that the obama administration kept some of those regulation, held them back until after the election but they're coming now. bill: big, big picture. 35,000 feet. the idea of the law was to insure those who
tv, john lott argues that thanks to president obama we're on the verge of economic and social collapse. it's about an hour, 20. [applause] >> well, i greatly appreciate the chance to be here. you've had quite a few distinguished speakers in the past recently, so it's nice to, i feel honored to be added to the list. i've been asked to talk about the new book that i have that just came out just within the last two weeks. it's entitled "at the brink: will obama push us over the edge?" and i think like maybe a lot of americans there's a lot of really crucial things that are happening right now. i think, unfortunately, in some areas the president's policies have permanently damaged the country. there are other areas where i think we're close, that things can still be fixed, and disaster can be averted in some areas. but i'm going to try to go through a few of the topics that i have, everything from health care to the economy generally to gun control. you know, just on gun control there's been a lot of things that have been happening over just even the past few weeks. i was in colorado a couple

-faceted acquisition reform. it was levin-mccain reform. so it was bipartisan reform. john mccain is very, very aggressive on this issue. and so part of that, and there are many more parts to it, but part of that is to say that we're going to stop any new developments, when we get to a certain point early in this development of a weapons system and leave it there. it may be only 90% as good but it will be half the cost. another thing that we've done there is we've, we put in many more stop points in the cycle in terms of cost to try to keep these costs in line. and there's a number of other things that we have put in place. with the f-35 the manager of that program was let go. was removed from that program. and, the cost issue, we have slowed down the production of the plane so that we don't fly before we buy. we're doing less of that. there was much too much of that, what is called concurrency. we've reduced the possibility of concurrency, flying before we actually go into the full-rate production of weapons systems. but it's, it's major problem. if you ask, who pays for it? the american taxpa
giants, john paul ii and benedict roxvi introduced an er in which the cathric church offers confident rebuttal to the false promises of the secular world. how would you like to see pope francis influence american political debates? we have so many of them, whether it's abortion or gay marriage, how would you like to see that impact? >> i think he simply has to preach the gospel and then do it in a way that is accessible and the holy spirit makes the impact, we believe. conversion of heart and mind is not something any pope or preacher can do. that depends upon god's grace, but you have to prooech the gosp gospel, and he'll do that. in a sense, you can say there is no god and freud is his praufrt, so for the sake of sexual liberation, we're allowing a lot of things to be let go. we'll see what happens. we can only trust that the lord is still with his people and loved the world that his son died to save. >> your imminence, isn't that part of the struggle, what you're speaking about, preaching from the gospel? so many gathrics in the country see the tension between church doctrine and t
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
